- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Iammatteo is a physician who is caring and who actually listens to you. He is an excellent diagnostician, which I attribute it to his vast experience as a practicing physician for 14 years. Dr Iammatteo was the prior director of preoperative services at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center/North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, where he contributed his medical opinions to surgeons and anesthesiologists, regarding patients going to surgery. I have been suffering from pulmonary issues for years and I am alive today because Dr Iammatteo diagnosed me with a chronic lung disease called sarcoidosis. Dr Iammatteo sent me to the top physician in that field, Dr Padiila, out of Mt. Sinai, who had written the text book on sarcoidosis. Dr Iammatteo is a wonderful physician, who takes his time with all patients and sends you if need, to the top physicians in there respected fields!
